All right, all bets are down.

All dressed up in fancy clothes

To blow my bubbles away

- Hey.

- Hi!

Tail those two guys.

I'm takin' a ride in their car.

"In all the galaxies,

in all the endless reaches of space,

I have found no planet

more blessed than this one."

"And yet, in its uncontrollable insanity,

the human race seeks to destroy

this shining jewel,

this blessed sphere,

which men call Earth."

"And trapped upon this world of madness

stand I!"

"The Silver Surfer!"

Yeah! Yeah, you tell 'em, Surfman!

You tell 'em!

Life is just a bowl of cherries

I ain't taking no trouble

To turn my nights into day

Hello, little Porsche!

Like to go home with me, little Porsche?

Take me all the way to LA

to see my baby!

I can see all the folks,

they're laughin' at me

Cos I'm just naturally crazy

Bad boy

All dressed up in fancy clothes

Jesse! Jesse!

- Jess, take me with you!

- Nah! Risky, baby.

Jess, I ain't scared of nothin'!

Come on, you little baby Porsche!

Come on! Come on!

Yeah, that's right! Yeah!

All right.

So first I go get the money.

Then I go ask Monica.

I say "Monica,

"Monica, you coming to Mexico with me!"

Me and Monica!

I know what we need!

We need the Killer! The Killer rocks on!

Mr Jerry Lee Lewis

and his pumpin' piano!

If you're gonna love me,

lover, please don't tease

If I can hold you, honey, let me squeeze

Well, my heart, it goes round and round

And my love comes tumblin' down

You leave me... ah... breathless!

Oh, I shake all over,

honey, you know why

I'm sure it's love,

baby, now that ain't no lie

Let me have a look here

and see who's lost a Porsche.

Wow! Holy frijoles!


Ooh, baby!

Mmm, crazy!

Honey, you're much too much

Now you know I can't love you enough

It's all right to hold me tight

But when you love me, love me right!

Come on, baby, now you don't be shy

This love was meant forjust you and I

Wind, rain, sleet or snow,

I'm gonna get you, baby

My God! Look at that sky!

You leave me... ah... breathless!

Come on, girl! Damn!

Grandma was slow, but she was old!

Hey, girls! You ever kiss a pig?

I say "Monica! I'm comin', baby!

I'm getting closer!"

Baby... baby

Honey, you're much too much

Sh*t! A cop!

Jinxed! I swear to God, I am jinxed!

Move away from the car! Let me see

your hands! Get away from the car!

Move! I said move!

Get away from the car, you son of a b*tch!

Get away from the car

or I'll blow you away!


That's right. Keep goin'. Keep goin'.

Around the corner. Nobody home.

Baby, I like yellow.

Monica - 19.

Nobody home.

What do you think?

Hey, good idea.

You're so pretty.

Ah, honey, honey, honey,

And if you love me, love me right
